You didn't mention if you have an automatic or manual. I have a '79
240D with a manual and a couple of years ago was driving along and all
of a sudden, car wouldn't shift. I could only get it in first gear.
Limped home and stuck my head under. Problem was a couple of nylon
bushings where the linkage joins the tranny body. Just plain worn out.
Might check for this one.
